About the Show

‘The reason for the national apathy to racial politics in this country stems, I believe, from the national ignorance of Aboriginal culture and economy, and that ignorance has to be laid in part at the feet of our learning institutions. A legion of professors and other academics at our universities decided it would be unnecessary for our golden youth to know what the explorers witnessed of Aboriginal excellence.’ – Bruce Pascoe, Salt

Bruce Pascoe, acclaimed author of Dark Emu and Salt, kicks off the Literature & Ideas Weekend 2020 in a conversation with Noongar academic and musician Dr Clint Bracknell. After the conversation, experience a Wirlomin Noongar performance in the Patricia Crawford Courtyard on the grounds at the University of Western Australia.
